Lots of snark with a bit of dark...

Raw, riveting, and realistic writing from my heart to yours.

Profile Information

Welcome, friend! 

Thanks for entering my creative writing corner. I invite you to read my poetry, my essays and my young adult stories. Some topics challenge the fabric of our society. Others depict the real struggles of courageous girls learning to grow into strong women. 

This is my platform. Here, I recharge myself after lovely days of chasing my happy, curious, and sometimes mischievous three-year-old son, my miracle baby. Here, I escape and reveal the deepest parts of myself, the girl who survived.

I wrote my first story at the age of three about a mouse defeating a cat. I am that fearless cat, thriving after abuse, raising my child with my ever supportive and loving partner. My life would not be complete without them. Or without my writing. 

I share my stories with you because everyone deserves a safe space to dream. Feel free to unwind, laugh, cry, think, enjoy a wonderful moment. May you be inspired!
